Whenever I drink beer, I notice it makes me feel kind of sickly. Earlier tonight I had about 5 beers (after 3 I was feeling good and tipsy so of course I wanted more), I fell asleep for a bit, but now I woke up and feel shitty. My stomach is bloated and I have a headache.
This happens every time I drink beer. Is this a common thing? Or is my body just particularly bad at handling it?
Nigga, you probably have Celiac disease. That's what happened to me before I cut wheat out of my diet (this includes beer). It's also what makes me deathly afraid of kissing women who haven't just immediately brushed their teeth and gargled mouthwash.
>TFW kissing girls literally makes you sick to your stomach
You could have an allergy to one or more of the ingredients that was used to brew it. It's not uncommon. I've noticed that with unfiltered wheat beers I can get a bit head stuffy.
could by psychosomatic though
Although, sour stomach/bloating is common with beers in general. So I wouldn't be too worried.
Drink plenty of water while you're consuming alcohol if you don't ya dingus. May be hard to tell your drunk self that, but find a way. Water helps everything.
Alcohol is an anti-diuretic, same thing in soda that makes you thirstier despite drinking the soda. When you drink lots of alcohol that chemical basically pulls water out of your body's cells. In addition, people tend to be more active when drunk and sweat easier. When you eventually come to, your skull is being pulled apart by dehydrated cells in your body. The only real solution is to hydrate properly and wait for the diuretics to run their course. Avoid salty foods and soda/more alcohol. It's known as a hangover and there is no real cure. Best thing you can do is drink two cups of water before going to sleep after a long night out. Even if you feel like you'll vomit, your body can handle straight water in small doses. It'll make the next morning feel much better.
The bloating is just your intestines full of beer. You'll have a really mean splatter fest with lots of nugget sized turds, then the bloating will go away. Don't trust a fart, it's probably shit.
Could be shitty beer, or you may not be good at processing beer in general.
Beer gives me the worst hangovers, 4 of them can make me feel crap the next morning.
I can drink a bottle of wine and feel fine.
Vodka/spirits go down incredibly easy.
OP here I just never know when it seems like a good point to stop. It seems like only after 2-3, I feel this really good buzz...But most people dont stop there do they? Im not drunk yet at that point.
Im a hypochondriac so I worry about this shit a lot. For some reason beer tends to just make me feel shitty. I would describe it as feeling super "heavy", feels like the heaviest shit in the world.
If I were to guess, there is less ADH in heavier beers than lighter beers. (ADH - anti diuretic hormone) or the chemicals in heavier beers make the digestion and introduction into the bloodstream process slower, allowing for a more controlled processing.
allergy to hops,whatever grain the stuff is fermented in,american brewsky usually has chemical agents out in it,,bro in law said that anythung besides his fav,( old brand called schlitz) gave him a headache.
OP here again, whats weird is that back in my early college days, I could have a lot and feel fine the next morning. I remember drinking tons of light beer the night before, getting really drunk, and waking up fine with no problems.
Did I somehow lose my tolerance as I got older?
A lot of people can't handle getting piss drunk on beer without getting sick as a dog one way or another. You're not alone in that at all anon.
pro tip: buy good beer for good flavors, buy vodka for getting drunksies
yes, I'm pretty sure everyone in my immediate family has it. none of us can drink certain beers without getting killer hangovers and becoming really sick. Doesn't help that my sister and grandmother are genuinely celiac, so my dad and I probably have at least a bit of an intolerance
and the old protips of drinking water and eating pizza don't help, it really is just that I can't drink certain beers if I have shit to do the next day
Don't drink beer you shitter.
Drink liqueur like a real man. That'll get you fucked up. Why drink shit-tasting things more than you have to?
Tip:Learn to mix drinks as well. Some stuff is pretty great tasting and potent.
I know, you're right. Every time I see an alcohol thread I can't help but post shit like that. I'm sorry.
I'm not doing better though, I'm shaking like a demon and feel like absolute death.
Thanks for the sympathy though.
Carbonation, ales have much less carbonation than lagers and are nearly flat by the time it reaches your stomach. Lagers will still be full of dissolved gas and can release up to twice the volume of the beer in your stomach.
